Before you set off for any Pride parties, let us take a moment to dig a little deeper into its origins.

Pride month had its roots in remembrance of the Stonewall uprising in June 1969 that has come to stand for fighting for equal rights of the LGBTQ+ community. In 1999, President Bill Clinton issued a proclamation for the Gay and Lesbian Pride Month. He called upon “Gays and lesbians, their families and friends, [to] celebrate the anniversary of Stonewall every June in America as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month." That sealed June as Pride month officially.

And in case you are wondering, LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning or Queer, while the "+" represents other sexual identities.

Now you will never be stumped by a smart-aleck asking you about Pride's origins and whatever LGBTQ+ means. Next, let us delve a little deeper into the hues of the Rainbow flag.

Did you know that there are only six stripes on the Pride Rainbow Flag? Say what? Yes, you heard that right. The official Rainbow Flag of the LGBTQ+ community has only six colours. Each colour holds a meaning: red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for harmony and purple for spirit.

Let us go back in time. The original Rainbow Flag designed by gay activist Gilbert Baker in 1978 sported eight colours. Each of the eight colours were assigned specific meanings by the designer: Pink = Sex, Red = Life, Orange = Healing, Yellow = Sunlight, Green = Nature, Turquoise = Art, Indigo = Harmony, and Violet = Spirit.

However, sourcing for the pink fabric required for the top layer proved an uphill task as hot pink was not a colour in demand then. So out goes pink. That’s one colour down. So whatever happened to indigo, the 7th colour?

Story has it that when the 1979 Pride Parade Committee decided to use the 7-stripe rainbow flag to honour the assassinated gay community leader Harvey Milk, the logistics involved to divide the colours evenly on parade grounds led to the eventual decision to stick to an even number of colours on the flag. And that is the story of the 6-striped Rainbow Pride flag. Over the years, the former indigo stripe evolved into a more classic royal blue.
